Furture Diary Volume 1 Review

“I’ve always been a bystander.”

Amano Yukiteru is a 2nd year high school student who’s content to watch the world pass him by and make notes in his cell phone diary. He contents himself with his imaginary friend Deus Ex Machina, Lord of Time & Space. His time as a spectator comes to an end however when the not-so-imaginary after all Deus changes his diary to record future events, and forces him to participate in a game where the survivor will become Deus’s successor.


Future Dairy is built around an interesting core idea, but is already going off the rails a little. There appear to be some contradictions in the “rules” and I honestly feel things are going way to fast. Still, the variety of diaries and extremely varied personalities and motivations in play here give great potential for growth and depth. A solid, if imperfect, start.
